Frantisek Velebil/Anna Marie Wolfova

Posted In

I am searching for information on my great grandparents, Frantisek Velebil, born 29 January 1862-1864?, near Prague. His naturalization papers say he immigrated to the US in May 1887. He settled first in Montevideo, MN where he married Anna Wolfe on 15th October 1887. They had children in MN, then moved to Belleville, KS about 1900 and later to Fairbury, NB, where they both died. I can not find the ship they arrived on or the village that they originated from in Bohemia. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.



Thank you. I don’t believe any of the Velebil family came with Frank. I have been researching all the Velebil’s in America and can’t find any possible links. I will look at some of their neighbors in Minnesota to see who came from where.

Don’t spend too much time looking for the ship, rarely does it tell you a village name. I guess I would suggest checking out any other Czech’s in the area of MN he first lived in. Maybe someone was related to him, or came from the same village. Good luck !
